Buckley Gray Yeoman was appointed to undertake a radical re-invention of this prominent wedge-shaped building in Holborn, which was built for the Ministry of Defence in 1947. The 250,000 sq.ft major commercial building sits at the meeting of Bloomsbury Way and New Oxford Street. The building has been opened up to its surroundings with a generous new double-height reception space with new retail shops and restaurants introduced at ground floor. The new stone frontage has large glazed openings that wrap the whole building at the ground and first floor, maximising views in, out and through the building. A new 9th floor with full-height glazing and large roof terraces boasts breathtaking views over London’s skyline. BuckleyGrayYeoman’s new design has transformed 10 Bloomsbury Way from a monotonous and out-of-date structure into a contemporary and relevant commercial building with iconic presence that delivers high quality, flexible open plan office spaces with a distinctive urban feel.
